I'm looking into using this display for a small project I'm working on, but I'm not positive what kind of connector it has:

What I can't tell is if it's a standard ribbon cable that'll connect with MIPI/DSI interfaces or if it's something totally different. All it says about the display is that it uses an 8bit Parallel Data with MPU (8080-series MPU).

  • \$\begingroup\$ Ah ok, my bad, I'll fix that part of the info. I'm still in a research and learning progress about this at the moment. \$\endgroup\$ – Generalkidd Jan 10 '18 at 18:02
  • \$\begingroup\$ It says the protocol is 8080 type 8 bit parallel, aka MIPI DBI. The connector is just some arbitrary pin layout. \$\endgroup\$ – user3528438 Jan 10 '18 at 18:05
  • \$\begingroup\$ So in that case, do most MIPI DSI host controllers, like say on a Raspberry Pi, accept a MIPI DBI input? I've found mixed things on that when researching it a bit. There doesn't seem to be a very clear consensus on that form what I can tell. \$\endgroup\$ – Generalkidd Jan 10 '18 at 18:14
  • \$\begingroup\$ DSI support does not indicate anything about DBI support. However there is a high chance of the opposite because DSI and DBI doesn't overlap much in terms of time frame and market segmentation. \$\endgroup\$ – user3528438 Jan 10 '18 at 19:47

FFC/FPC connectors. They are used for flex cables (the gold colored cable). Flex cables and ribbon cables are not the same. Flex cables are flexible printed circuit board.
